Producers and Engineers Deserve More Credit

The Recording Academy has launched “Give Fans The Credit,” a campaign to help ensure that all music creators are credited for their work on digitally released recordings. Now, The Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing is teaming with its UK-based counterpart, the Music Producers Guild (MPG), which has for several years lobbied its own initiative, “Credit Where Credit Is Due,” to combine resources to find solutions to this industry problem. Songwriters, non-featured performers, producers and engineers work tirelessly and make significant contributions to recordings, but with dissolving liner notes, these creators rarely receive credit on digital music devices. The “Give Fans The Credit” campaign addresses these issues by opening a petition and a brainstorming discussion to create a more robust crediting information system on digital music platforms. Visit for more information.
